When we were in Huancayo at the Mantaro Stake Center last month, we were surprised when the stake president asked Beverly to be the main speaker at a fireside on Traditions of LDS Women. After all, Beverly had never given a talk in Spanish of over 12 minutes, and the stake president wanted her to speak 30-40 minutes!
Sunday, August 2, we returned to Huancayo for the Relief Society Fireside, where Beverly read a 30-minute talk. She used PowerPoint slides as part of her presentation. This is the title slide:
She spoke of three traditions of LDS women: Virtue, scripture study, and temple covenants. Here's the slide that introduced the tradition of virtue. It includes a picture collage of some of the wonderful LDS women we know in our mission:
The event was well attended (about 150 women). Scott took this picture of some of the congregation:
After the fireside, Beverly shook hands with members of the stake choir:
Dozens of women came up to the stand afterwards to thank Beverly for her talk and to have their picture taken with her:
Congratulations, Beverly, on giving your keynote address in Spanish!
